A rising sophomore at the University of Dallas (UD) in Irving, Tex., wants to become a doctor to help people, but he said that he will go “Wherever God calls [him] to be,” according to the University’s website.
Arinzechukwu "Michael" Obegolu is a biology and pre-med major with a Spanish concentration at UD, and is also an altar server on campus. The University reports:
With his UD education, Obegolu hopes to continue on to medical school and eventually be licensed to practice either pediatrics or gynecology. He wants to have an impact, to improve people's lives.
…"The more I read about this college, the more I began to fall in love with it," Obegolu said. "Being brought up in a Catholic family, I knew that UD would help me become more devoted to my faith. When I visited the campus, I was so amazed at how nice and friendly the students and staff were. I was also impressed by the biology program and captivated by the Core curriculum and Rome Program."
…"Serving at Mass helps me to be an active participant in the Church and maintain a strong relationship with God," Obegolu said.
University of Dallas is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
